You never know where JD might show up this summer! J.D., the Dragon mascot for the Johnston Community School District, will be taking off again this summer throughout the city of Johnston. Our problem—we just don’t know where J.D. is planning to go. Johnston Community Education would really like to find J.D. as J.D. is supposed to be helping out the city and school this summer. Can you help us find J.D.? J.D. has a website blog, Facebook page and Twitter account. The website/Facebook will show where J.D. has been and provides a photo of a J.D. sighting from within the community. J.D. may also send “tweets” with hints and other information that may help in his whereabouts. Help us find J.D. this summer and your family will be entered into a drawing to win a prize. Join us this summer to see where he travels. Rules A team is a family from one household. Should be at least one adult and one child. Each week a photo will be placed on the website and Facebook page about the latest sighting of J.D. Every family team that correctly identified J.D.’s location will result in a ticket being added to the drawing. The number of tickets that your team receives each week you participate will depend upon how you identify the location. Bonus tickets will also be available. All entries must be received, by email or in person, by 12:00 Noon CDT, each Tuesday for the prior week. (Example Week 1 entry is due by noon on Tuesday, June 3) New photos of J.D.’s location will be posted at noon each Tuesday. J.D. will be out of town and unable to attend the Jazz in July event. So he will do the drawing before he leaves town and the Johnston Library staff will contact the winners. All entries, including photographs, become the property of the City of Johnston. Participation provides the City of Johnston the permission to use photos and names to promote “J.D.’s Great Summer Adventure” via electronic and print media and/or for local media coverage. How to submit J.D’s location Option 1: Email your answer for J.D.’s location to [email protected]; correct answers earn one team entry into the prize drawing. Entry must include the subject line “J.D.’s Great Summer Adventure” and include your team name, address, phone number and the specific location of J.D. for that week. Option 2: Have your (at least one member of the team in photo) picture (1mb or less) taken in the exact location as J.D. is in photo and email it to us at [email protected] and earn five team entries into the prize drawing per week, per team. Website to help you find J.D. http://wheresjd.wordpress.com/ Option 3: Take your answer and/or your photos, and deliver them in person to the Johnston Public Library (J.D.’s drop box) to receive the appropriate number of entries. Forms will be available from library staff. For more information contact JCE at 278-0552 or the Johnston Public Library at 278-5233.

Be Safe This Summer Johnston Police Department Top 5 Crime Prevention Tips 1. Keep your overhead garage doors closed whenever you are going to be out of immediate sight of your garage. 2. Lock your vehicle and remove all valuable property from it whenever your vehicle is going to be left unattended for any period of time. 3. Avoid placing outgoing mail in your residential mailbox and remove the incoming mail from your mailbox as soon as possible. 4. Keep your purse with you at all times when you are out. Avoid leaving it in a car, on the ground, in a neighboring seat or hanging on the back of a chair. 5. Never respond to an unsolicited phone call or email requesting personal or financial information until you have confirmed the requesting party is legitimate. Johnston Neighborhood Watch Program Johnston Running Club Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most effective crime prevention programs in the country, bringing citizens and neighbors together to deter crime and safeguard communities with the goal of preventing crime before it happens. On any given day, and often without warning, you are subjected to varying levels of criminal activity taking place directly within your own community. The Johnston Neighborhood Watch program is about neighbors helping neighbors and partnering directly with the Johnston Police Department where you will be provided with the knowledge on how you can make yourself and your community safer. The Johnston Police Department meets regularly with neighborhood watch groups to answer questions, discuss current crime trends, and provide training and information on Crime Prevention, Home Security and other topics of particular interest to your group. The Johnston Running Club will host an informational meeting on our spring track program on March 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Johnston Middle School.
